Contractions (n't)
Song For Teaching Grammar - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley

This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's English: Sing Your Way to Easy Learning


You know, CONTRACTIONS-Means a letter's left out...
We use APOSTROPHES ...That's what CONTRACTIONS are all about....
CONTRACTIONS- Make two words into one
You know CONTRACTIONS-Well, they are always such fun...
You see APOSTROPHES and you know that you
Have lost a letter....or maybe two...
But if we listen to just how this song goes
We won't ever have CONTRACTION woes..

Isn't means is not,
Hasn't means has not
Wasn't means was not,
And do not means don't....

Couldn't means could not,
Shouldn't means should not
Wouldn't means would not,
And then we have won't...

Won't doesn't mean WO NOT,
Won't means WILL NOT
Can't means CAN NOT,
Just leave the N O out....

We know that
Didn't means did not,
Haven't means have not,
Doesn't means does not
We're just at the end...,
Weren't means were not....

So when you use contractions,
Apostrophes are magic
So use them as friends.
